As part of the research - we make the following measurements scientific, research and analysis:

• analysis of the municipal waste stream at an angle toward the optimal transformation,
• analysis of waste from various industries in the direction of further 
• determine the properties of hazardous waste in order to choose the least burdensome method of disposal for the environment,
• studies of landfill leachate,
• biomass research towards energy use,
• analysis of soils.
Research activity is focused on the following issues:
The directions of scientific - research include:
• research into the possibilities and conditions for composting of municipal waste and selected groups of biodegradable waste;
• testing and evaluation of fuel created based waste products, biomass,
• analytical research and product waste heat recovery;
• research disposal of hazardous waste.

 The potential offer for the industry:
